Of course, I've heard of the condiment remoulade (pronounced here "Hrem-you-LAYLE"), but I must mention this one first because, I was told by a Dane, "Everyone here is very proud of it." Proud of a condiment? OK. I had to try it.
Remoulade tastes like a mix of mayo and relish, kind of like sweet pickles and cream. It's meant to go with fish, and I have tried it on that, as well as on a veggie burger. It's hard to imagine that this is the secret to Danish happiness (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66yKjSIe81Q), but hey, if that's their story, I'm not going to argue.
This is Danish nutella, only instead of hazelnuts it is just pure chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. It comes as wafer-thin pieces of milk or dark chocolate in perfect rectangular portions to put on half a slice of dark rye toast. I had read about this traditional Danish treat online a few days ago, and so I got a warm smile from a grocery store staff member who overheard me telling the children, "Let's put the nutella back and get these chocolate planks instead. We're in Denmark, so we'll eat chocolate the Danish way."
